By The Hub team, November 21, 2017

Today, we announced more opportunities for our customers to travel from five of our U.S. airport hubs to 10 cities in California, Florida, Montana, New York, North Carolina, Oregon and Texas beginning in April 2018. Additionally, we announced that we will begin optimizing our O'Hare International Airport (ORD) schedule to provide shorter connection times and more options for our customers connecting through Chicago.

"We continue to focus on making United the first choice for customers when planning their domestic and international travel," said Grant Whitney, United's vice president of Domestic Network Planning. "Our new daily services connect customers to important business markets and our new seasonal summer routes provide more customers with convenient access to enjoy our National Parks."

Beginning April 9, 2018, service to Wilmington, North Carolina from Chicago and Washington Dulles and to Elmira, New York from New York/Newark will operate daily nonstop service year round. The full list of these new routes includes:

  • Chicago to El Paso, Texas
  • Chicago to Wilmington, North Carolina
  • Denver to Jacksonville, Florida
  • Los Angeles to Redmond, Oregon
  • Los Angeles to Medford, Oregon
  • New York/Newark to Elmira, New York
  • Washington-Dulles to Wilmington, North Carolina

We are also offering a new summer service in 2018, allowing more customers to have easier access to popular outdoor destinations like Yosemite National Park near Fresno; Glacier National Park near Kalispell and Yellowstone National Park near Missoula. These daily service routes will begin June 7 and June 8 and include:

  • Chicago to Fresno, California
  • Los Angeles to Kalispell, Montana
  • Los Angeles to Missoula, Montana

In addition to adding new domestic routes to our schedule, we are enhancing our operations in Chicago. Beginning in February 2018, a newly enhanced bank structure at O'Hare Airport will mean shorter connection times and better access to more destinations for our customers connecting through Chicago. This operations enhancement, already in place at our Houston Airport hub, will enable us to greatly improve connectivity throughout our industry-leading global route network.
